2002 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5M)


I tried the Explorer, Grand
Cherokee,and others (even the non-
truck SUVs,these are fine if you don't
need the capabilities of a truck). I
found the Pathfinder SE to be the best
overall value (excellent reliabilty
record was a big factor). The build is
solid and of high quality. I have had
it 3 weeks and I like it more each
time I drive it. $1000 under invoice
and 0.9 financing didn't hurt, either!

Best Features

Good cargo room. Excellent engine and powertrain. Gas mileage is 18 MPG (back and forth to work (non-highway!) I don't drive with a lead foot. This is good mileage for a truck. Comfortable and fun to drive, feels like it is glued to the road. So far, I am very happy with it.

Worst Features

More back seat room and about an inch more front leg room. How about an accurate fuel gauge? With the gauge reading 1/4 tank I can only get 13 gallons into it (this is with a 21 gallon fuel tank). Can something be done about the slippery leather steering wheel?
